Perfect location for exploring Donner area. Mike had plenty of helpful information for us about the area. He made reservations for us at Cottonwood - a great place for dinner. We had a minor problem with our room and Mike made it right by adjusting the bill. Would definitely stay here again. Hope I get to stay here again.

We came up for a lacrosse tournament and loved being on the lake, near the State Park, close to good food and the main areas of town. The rooms were quaint, clean and nice. You say small I say snug...and lovely. I am glad we did not stay in town because this had a beautiful view and nice staff.

We had the least expensive room, rather small, which is right on the large sunny deck overlooking the beautiful lake. As this rustic, older lodge is on a frequently traveled street, I thought we would hear auto noise but none could be heard. Even if you are there in the day, what you hear, besides occasional feet clomping upstairs, is... More

Stayed here last year in September during a Tough Mudder weekend in Tahoe. The room we got is very small. The ceilings are low and walls are a bit thin.
